[PD] PD to CV redux (Arduino)

I wanted to bring this super interesting discussion back, since it only 
touched on a few different things before wandering off into ModTracker 
territory (not so interesting for me...)

If I wanted to program an Arduino to send out Control Voltage for a 
modular synth, what would the resolution be? Would it be better than 
MIDI? Enough for microtones? Could it make quick modulations? (I saw 
that the filtered PWM method which some mentioned here is not good for 
fast changes in voltage.) How many channels could I get out of one 
board? I have two, but I haven't touched them yet. Would I need extra 
hardware (filters etc) to modify the voltage before it goes to the 
synth? Would anyone be interested in helping with such a project? In the 
Berlin area even? Are there any programs written for the Arduino that do 
this already?
